SAP SuccessFactors Learning (LMS)
There is a setting on LMS that controls this.
- Navigate to System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > LIBRARY
- Search for the displayMaxItemDescriptionLength configuration setting ( this setting does control the "show more" option in the user catalog search).
# The maximum length (in characters) of a learning item description that displays in the library. Default: 100
- The plain text description is used to determine length. HTML tags are ignored.
- All spaces are trimmed. Lead and trailing spaces are removed. Internal spaces are truncated, so " " becomes " " for count purposes.
- If a description has a lot of whitespace in it, that whitespace is being truncated prior to the length check. That's why it shows the whole block and not the "show more".
